Children and Families

We warmly welcome children and families to visit AGWA and explore the exhibitions and collections together.

Visit AGWA during school holidays and PLAY with Horizontal Geometries, FIND hexagons on the ceiling, DISCOVER stories of the building, DRAW your breath, LISTEN to your feelings and SHARE ideas.

Conversations with Rain | FREE
Collect your interactive Unlocking Imagination journal and pencil from the front desk and let it lead you on a responsive journey through the Gallery. A shared family experience for all ages! Learn more about the Conversations with Rain program.

Horizontal Geometries | Gold coin donation
Join us in the main Gallery space to play with pattern, shape and colour to create your own evolving installation of hexagons, conceived by WA Now artist Eveline Kotai. This is a large-scale extension of Eveline Kotai's current Imagination Room activation. All ages welcome! Then visit Breathing Pattern and explore the patterns and colours Eveline Kotai uses in her own work.
